- SET GOALS: A study in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience Reviews; people that set goals are generally more together than everyone else. That’s because goal setting rewires our brains to make the component parts work more effectively. The study showed that when you set a goal, multiple parts of the brain are suddenly engaged:
- The amygdala, which is the brain’s emotional center, evaluates the goal for how important it is to you.
- The frontal lobe, which is the brain’s logical problem-solving portion, defines the goal and digests it.
- Set Specific Goals: Research by Edwin Locke and Gary Latham found that when people followed these two principles -- setting specific and challenging goals -- it led to higher performance 90 percent of the time.
- Write them Down: People Who Write Down Their Goals Are 20% More Successful In Accomplishing Them Than Those Who Did Not. (Gail Matthews’ Goal Research Summary)
